Early Data from Phase 1/2 CARE Study
The primary objective of the Phase 1 dose escalation portion of the study is to evaluate the safety and tolerability and determine the recommended Phase 2 dose (RP2D) of repotrectinib in pediatric patients less than 12 years old. The primary objective of the Phase 2 portion of the study is to determine the anti-tumor activity of repotrectinib in pediatric and young adult patients less than 25 years old. Repotrectinib is administrated in capsule or suspension formulation using weight-based dosing for patients less than 12 years old. Patients 12 to 25 years old can enroll directly into the Phase 2 portion of the study with a repotrectinib dose of 160 mg QD for the first 14 days and may increase to 160 mg BID thereafter.
The early Phase 1/2 CARE dataset utilizes an August 2, 2021 data cutoff date. Ten patients were treated across two dose levels. The safety analysis includes the ten treated patients, and the preliminary efficacy analysis includes eight evaluable patients. Patients included in the efficacy analysis had baseline measurable disease and at least one post-baseline evaluable scan. Response evaluation was by physician assessment and per RECIST v1.1 or RANO for CNS tumors. Responses were confirmed with a subsequent scan at least 28 days later.
The findings were reported in a pre-recorded presentation by Steven G. Dubois, M.D., associate professor of Pediatrics, Harvard Medical School available on October 23 at 9:12 a.m. ET on the meeting website.
Preliminary Safety Analysis (n=10) and Pharmacokinetic Analysis
Repotrectinib was generally well tolerated.
The most frequently reported treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs) were anemia (n=5) and fatigue (n=5). Among patients with anemia, three had baseline history of anemia.
Dizziness events (n=4) were grade 1 or 2 and none led to treatment discontinuation.
No patients discontinued treatment due to reasons other than disease progression and no patients had TEAEs that led to dose reduction.
No dose-limiting toxicities were reported.
Preliminary pharmacokinetics data indicated that the exposure of repotrectinib in different age groups was comparable to the adult exposure at steady-state.
Preliminary Efficacy Analysis (n=8)
Eight patients were evaluable for efficacy, including four TKI-naïve and four TKI-pretreated patients. TKI-naive patients included those with NTRK amplified anaplastic ependymoma (n=1), NTRK fusion glioblastoma multiforme (GBM)/high grade glioma (n=1), NTRK fusion sarcoma (n=1), and ROS1 fusion inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) (n=1). TKI-pretreated patients included those with NTRK fusion GBM/high grade glioma (n=2), NTRK fusion mesoblastic nephroma (n=1), and NTRK fusion sarcoma (n=1).
Three TKI-naïve patients (2 NTRK fusion solid tumors; 1 ROS1 fusion IMT) achieved confirmed responses. One of the three responding patients had a NTRK fusion GBM/high grade glioma, was previously treated with tumor resection, whole brain radiotherapy, and multi-agent chemotherapy, and achieved a complete response (CR) and remained in a response for 3.8+ months as of the data cutoff date. The other two confirmed responders remained in response with duration of response of 7.3+ and 12.1+ months, respectively.
Of the four TKI-pretreated patients, one patient with NTRK fusion sarcoma had a best response of stable disease.
